Excellent walking from the traditional village of Bocognano
Part of France but distinctly different, influenced by Italy but not Italian, the Corsicans have a language, culture, cuisine and way of life all of their own.
This holiday is based in Bocognano (650m), a village in the midst of magnificent scenery. It is served by the delightful mountain railway which connects Ajaccio with Corte and provides us with easy access to a good range of walking in Corsica,from the Mediterranean to the central highlands.
The mountains rise from the western coast of pink granite to an impressive range of peaks running down the spine of the island. The distance from the highest peak to the sandy beaches is less than 40km; a compact area providing superb mountain walks through forests, valleys and traditional villages.
What makes this trip responsible?
We stay in a traditional provincial family run hotel, which has been in the Ferri-Pisani family for three generations, so contributing directly to the local communities and our food on the trip is bought fresh at local stores and markets, helping to support the local economy and ensuring that our clients sample the delicacies that Corsica has to offer.
